No Air Conditioning For Seniors

Dear Editor,

Rockaway Beach Seaside Senior Center on 90 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard has had no air conditioning for over one month. I called 311 and wrote a letter to Mayor Bloomberg a month ago. We are headed for our second heat wave in one month. That is a sad and dangerous example of not caring for your senior citizens in the Rockaway area. Catholic Charities and the Department for the Aged are lacking in their quality of life issues. Remember, you too will be old someday. The landlord said he would not fix the air conditioning until the city signed a lease, and the seniors are suffering very serious health and environmental conditions.
